A MathLink Tutorial
Author

Todd Gayley
Organization: Wolfram Research, Inc.
Department: Kernel Technology
Description

This tutorial supplements the material in the MathLink Reference Guide. It covers all aspects of MathLink programming, especially topics that are treated very briefly or not at all in the Reference Guide. Topics include: passing lists and arrays, error handling, using C++ and FORTRAN, graphics, packet types, troubleshooting, etc. This tutorial supersedes any other MathLink documentation by the author. The formatting relies heavily on multiple fonts within cells, so Windows users might want to get the PostScript version as well.
